Steve....... keep your original trim tab set up . That design from Chris Craft is the best .. with no hose / log seal  . Fix the leak around the bronze  flange / hull seal .  I would also recommend fairing in a "ramp" inside the trim tab box area under the hull for better performance even at slower speeds .The 3 inch high vertical trailing edge creates a huge drag for the water to jump over at any speed .

I can send you pic`s of the  " ramp" I placed on my under hull trim tabs if you want . Installing Bennett tabs would be a large project with many new holes drilled to mount that system &  and cost  !!

I was reading your profile and read that you have your boat in the Georgian bay. I love that body of water. I also live your 47' boat.
